Hello Everyone
My name is Dave and middle name Rex...thus D Rex
A nickname my office girls gave to me as a play on 'T Rex'

It was quite a process to get signed up on this forum
But it appears I finally on

I'm in the process of buying a 1971 914
It was hit in the R front fender and now
Sat for > 40 years in a barn but was covered up
(see pic)

I own a '62 VW Beatle and had a '71 911 at one time
So am familiar with air cooled engines

Before the accident, it was apparently a running car
I know its hard to tell without a thorough inspection
But assuming it does not have much rust
How much should I be offering for it?

Thanks for all your expect advise

Drex
